Cecile McPeak learned to sew, craft, and "measure twice, cut once" from her creative parents, and she's proud to note that all three of her grown children are continuing the crafty family tradition. Part of the pleasure of her brand of creating is arranging a collection of inspiring materials--everything from old wooden spools and buttons to found objects, shells, stones, and sea glass. Someday these things might become part of a project, but in the meantime, they inspire creative thought.

Cecile feels fortunate to be part of the needle-arts industry as Founder and Creative Director of Just Another Button Company, a manufacturer of handmade polymer-clay buttons and pins. The buttons first appeared as ladybugs and bees on Cecile's silk-ribbon embroidery, and then gained popularity as whimsical embellishments by being featured in cross-stitching and quilting books from popular designers. Now Cecile leads the JABC team in creating new buttons plus cross-sitch designs, quilt patterns, and dozens of pincushion kits and patterns.

Rachel Martin continues the family tradition of turning creative ideas into art. Her paper art has been presented through 2 Martins in a Nest, a company created in partnership with her husband, Joshua Martin. The company debuted in Where Women Create magazine, in an article featuring the Martins' handmade wedding.

Rachel is in the process of furnishing and decorating her turn-of-the-century St. Louis home in her own style--a mix of vintage collectibles and whimsical art. She works as a designer for Just Another Button Company, producing distinctive images for its product lines. She enjoys combining vintage images with fresh, modern colors.
